Book Review: “Greater” by Steven Furtick



“Are you ready to open your imagination to the possibility that God has a vision for your life that is Greater? . . .If you sense that you were meant for more but feel stuck where you are, Greater will give you the confidence to know that nothing is impossible with God, the clarity to see the next step He’s calling you to take, and the courage to do anything He tells you to do.”

Steven Furtick has written another inspiring, life-changing book. Greater is based on John 14:12 “Very truly I say unto you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”  In the book Furtick defines the following:

Good enough = Baseline living that is marked by mediocrity, stuck in spiritual survival mode and controlled by complacency.

Greatness = Vague, unrealistic aspirations of doing better that don’t work in real life and lead to endless frustration.

Furtick then explains the definition of Greater as: “the life-altering understanding that God is ready to accomplish a greatness in your life that is entirely out of human reach. It’s beyond anything you see in yourself on your best day, but exactly what God has seen in you all along.”

With chapter titles such as “A Little Oil,” and “Strike the Water” and motivational comments including “What matters most is not what you think you are or are not. What matters most is what your Father sees in you and what He says about you” this book has the potential to change the life of every reader.

As Steven says, “For everybody who is sick of playing it safe, for every dreamer who has been disillusioned, your moment is now. The mantle is yours.”


I received a copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah for the sole purpose of writing a review. My review is my sole opinion, I was not influenced by the author, editor or publisher, nor did I receive any compensation for the review.
